Spicy Namak Para (Namak Paare) | Diamonds Cuts | Diwali Snacks Recipes

Spicy Namak Para, Nimiki, namak paare, or diamond cuts is popular snack or namkeen recipe during Diwali, festivals or even for tea time. I have already posted normal namak paare recipe and now I am posting spicy version of diamonds cuts (namak para). We make namak para for almost all festival like Diwali/Deepavali, Holi or for travel. Try this spicy version of namak paray this Diwali and you will like this too.

I have added garlic powder, you can add garlic paste or even can skip that if not preferred, for people love garlic it's wonderful snacks. As these namak para stays fresh for long time it's perfect for snack to carry during travelling or if going on long tour this diamond cuts or namak para is easy to carry and works great for tea time snack or even for breakfast, in my in-laws place namak para is always made during any tour or travelling.


If you don't eat much of spicy food then use either 1/4 or 1/2 tsp of chili powder, color of namak para depends on the chili powder quality. Use good quality chili powder to eat like this nice color namak para if not it will be pale in color but then the taste remains same anyways.
